Light and fast. I write stories for an hobby. All my stories are written with Abiword. I like it better hen LibreOffice.
fast and good enough to hack a short structured and formatted text including a odd table or image. No design tool or book creator.
very efficient, when it comes to adding images to your text, it handles them better than libreOffice. recommend 100%
Decided to give it a try after not using it for a while. Yes, it is lean on resources, compared to Libreoffice. Typed up a document, proceeded to save to avoid losing data: Program crahed on the spot. Uninstalling.
Use libreoffice instead
Traitement de texte ultra légés, il ne convient pas pour utilisation professionnelle ou en entreprice (on lui préferera LibreOffice Writer pour une utilisation plus poussée). Mais il est idéal pour les très vieux ordinateurs.
nach meiner Erfahrung als seriöses und professionelles Schreibprogramm nur sehr beschränkt einsetzbar
Easy to use and powerfull, it opens .docx too! The best text editor on lightweight distro
Fix the page scrolling if you want to be taken seriously
bien pour faire de petits documents simple
This programs is very sux.
Riddled with bugs, and always has been. I'm a writer, and this is software for writing. Yet, from experience I would never trust it to handle my words with care. Problem? Yes.
A good program.
Good, but I have libreOffice, so... I don't need this one.
Abiword is my favorite word processor. It has everything I need and more but not too much more. After Google Chrome and Thunderbird, the first tool out of the box.
Abiword is a simple basic word processor. I write documents using Abiword almost daily for internal company and personal use, and external publication/presentation documents.
So far so good... It's fast and very easy to use and it support MS word...
LibreOffice is now my favorite
Simple y funcional.
It certainly looks more appealing than OpenWord, especially on Mint 10 with its Faenza buttons. However I've encountered some rendering problems with .docx format (MSWord2007). .doc and .odt formats seem to work fine.
